I've been looking for a new rifle for a while and have narrowed my my choices down to three. Being that I'm left handed and wanted something in stainless for a trip to Alaska the choices become limited. In what order would you put these choices. Lefties are always short changed. 1) Remington 700 in 300 WIN; SS with a composite stock ($850) on line. Took a while to find one since there aren't many left handed stainless left hand 700s out there. 2) Ruger MKII in 300 WIN; SS with laminate stock ($575). 3) Weatherby Mark V Ultralight in 300 WBY ($1650). Now price is a factor, but not the decision maker. The price of the Ruger puts it in the running. From the looks of it is seems to fairly well made. The Weatherby is light, which makes it nice for backpack hunts and long stalks, but its pricey. And the Remington 700 has a reputation and ofers lots of options as far as customizing it later, but they are very hard to find. The price of the one I found it high for a stock 700 and the only one in 300 WIN I was able to find. Looking for some help deciding. Most of my hunting is a resonable ranges for whitetail. I'll be toting it to AK for moose and bear. And then on elk and sheep hunts in the future.
